Re: Debug Support in XSL (WAS RE: XML Extensibility / XML Schemas)
Excelon's Stylus has some capabilities. You are shown 3 windows of infor- mation. One shows a tree diagam of the input document and it displays a check makr on the elements that have templates directly defined for them. Another window shows the output. As you move the cursor in this window different blocks of text are highlighted to indicate what portions were generated with the same template, this is then tied to the final window that displays the template that fired or you are editing. The last feature is a trace window that shows you what templates fired and in what order. This helps with detecting when a defalut template handled something that you thought was handled by a more specifc template. The only problem with this tool is that thier XSLT implementation is incomplete and they also don't provide a command line version of that processor so you could implement it and any pecularities into an application. I have requested that they make it possible to integrate other processors. ..dan > > Hi Ken: > > Do you or anyone else know if these WYSIWYG XSL > editors will be handling the complexities of > authoring and debugging the XSL transforms?
